When to Change 1996 Chevrolet Beretta Engine Oil

Not sure how or where to get your Chevrolet Beretta’s oil changed? Get the advice you need at Firestone Complete Auto Care! We're experts in more than tires. Oil and lube services are also our specialties. We couldn’t put it better than our technician, Brianna. She likes to explain to customers that, “Oil is the blood of the engine. It’s the #1 thing you can do for your car.”

Your 1996 Beretta’s oil should be changed according to Chevrolet’s recommended oil change intervals. See mileage and month specifics in the above table. Your Beretta may need an oil change right away if your check engine/oil change light is on, you hear knock knock knock coming from the engine, smell oil inside the vehicle, or see an excess amount of vehicle exhaust. You might need an oil change more frequently than what’s recommended by Chevrolet if you regularly haul heavy loads, drive in dusty areas, adventure off-road, or drive at low speeds for long distances. Generally, getting more frequent oil changes won’t hurt your Chevrolet Beretta. In fact, every oil change is an opportunity to diagnose and treat any other issues, such as bad brakes or a failing battery.

1996 Chevrolet Beretta Oil Change Q&A

  • What can low oil do to my Chevrolet Beretta engine? Motor oil lubricates important engine parts. If you're low or out of oil, these components can grind against each other, overheat, and cause your Beretta’s engine to fail. That’s why you’re better off checking your oil levels and investing in routine lube services.
  • Can I change my Chevrolet Beretta oil at home? Changing engine oil at home isn’t as simple as it’s made out to be. It requires special tools and old oil must be disposed of properly. Getting a professional oil change reduces the risk of something going wrong during the service, but it’ll also help your car perform smoothly down the road.
  • Why is my Chevrolet Beretta spewing blue or gray exhaust smoke? You could have an oil leak and have a case of burning oil. Looks like it’s time for a professional to take a look. The leak could be caused by several issues like leaking valve seals, fried piston rings, or worn cylinder walls.
